Everyone who is joining this trip will receive FREE gas mask as a souvenir.

Have you ever wondered how would the world after the apocalypse look like. Did you ever want to walk abandoned streets of a town like a tough survivor in a Hollywood movie? Well, WE GO presents you with such an incredible opportunity. What about a day in an abandoned secret Soviet town. Skrunda-1 is the biggest ghost town in the Baltic States. In the midst of the Soviet economic development Skrunda-
1 had an approximate population of 5000 people. The town was built during the Cold War era and its sole purpose was to facilitate military research and development. Indeed, due to this reason it was a top secret location and no one without necessary security clearance was allowed in. There were state of the art military installations located in this area. It was a home to Soviet Union’s most developed weapons and reconnaissance equipment.


If you are a history nut, or simply want to get a glimpse into what would the world look like after a zombie apocalypse, then you have to join other young adventurers like yourself on a trip organized by WE GO. IMPORTANT: you will not only get a guided tour across this Soviet labyrinth but you will also get FREE TIME to wonder around in Skrunda! How awesome is that? Don’t to get lost though…

Description

Details

Deserted streets, town squares, abandoned cinema theaters and hospitals. Sounds like we‘re describing scenes from latest post-apocalyptic movie. However, WE GO knows a place like that in the real world. And we can take you there. If you dear to come, of course.

In Latvia, one of the Baltic states, there is an long forgotten town of Skrunda. It used to be a top secret Soviet military location. Only the personnel with high security clearance could enter this forbidden town. Soviets had their best equipment there during the cold war as Latvia was one of the most Westward countries of the Soviet Union. Now, however, the settlement is completely abandoned. You can only imagine the creepy feeling that you get when you walk around crumbling buildings, wondering what exactly used to go on in this town, how people lived beyond those walls.

What is more, you will not only get an interesting and insightful tour by an energetic guide, but you will be given time to roam free, find your own adventures and later WE GO will have an interactive game with photo orienting organized for the whole group. After that you will be able to by Soviet items in the gift shop.

WE GO gives you a wonderful and unique opportunity to experience this amazing place without having to organize everything yourself! All you’ve got to do is get some friends to come along with you. We will take care of all travel and entrance arrangements.

Traveling with WE GO is super easy and fun. Our crew is youthful and is ready to always show our customers good time. SO contact us to find if we are not fully booked (remember, first come first served) and then we’ll go on this awesome adventure together.
